Safety has a price

Dear All,

You’ve all heard about our urgent need of a vehicle to safely transport the underprivileged children from their home to Daktari. As we couldn’t carry on the project without a safe and legal vehicle to pick up and drop off the children we had to make numerous plans to purchase a vehicle on a loan. This wasn't easy but we made it!!!

We are now very happy to have a beautiful Toyota Quantum and can carry on the good work. The police have nothing to say anymore when they stop us on the road and we even think they are jealous and surprised by the way Daktari always manage to find solutions even when they are so difficult to get over. Thanks to our great supporters.

Unfortunately the loan to pay every month is affecting our monthly expenses very badly and we need every donation, even as little as 10 $ to refund the price of the car.

Tell us what you think of our car. We are so proud of it!!!!

We thank you for your continued support.

Have a nice summer holiday

Ian and Michele
